Relive your childhood fantasies with a performance of classic The Secret Garden. For a limited time only, from May 5th- 19th, the Astoria Performing Arts Center will fascinate audiences with the tale of Mary and her secret, magical garden.
Taking place in 1906 at a lonely manor, Archibald Craven is saddened by the loss of his wife and his crippled son. All this changes when he must take in young Mary, whose parents passed away. The union will change their lives forever.
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman and composer Lucy Simon had a successful stint on Broadway with this show, adapted from Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel.
